Most people don’t want the authorities to add fluoride to our water supply. That’s if interim results of the latest poll results in our Underground Knowledge group on Goodreads.com  are any guide.

In response to the question Do you believe fluoride should be in your town’s water supply?  more than two thirds of respondents say no.

Interim poll results are:

-67% of respondents say NO

-20% say YES

-13% are unsure.

 

 

Respondents’ comments make for interesting reading. Here’s some random examples:

I vote NO for the following reasons:
Harvard Study Confirms Fluoride Reduces Children’s IQ — http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-merc…
This pic lists some facts and theories concerning fluoride and how it apparently is detrimental to human’s health… https://www.goodreads.com/photo/group…
Tap water usually contains high levels of fluoride. Numerous studies have shown fluoride reduces IQ levels and in some cases even causes brain damage.

Fluoride has been considered a neurotoxin for some time now. I just pulled an older article: http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/na…

I can tell you that there’s no conspiracy, only stupidity. Cities take shortcuts and are under pressure to perform (in this case – provide safe water). Organic solutions like ozonation are cost prohibitive, and Fluoride effects are mild and subtle. But, there’s much worse crap in the water in cities, such as human waste, most importantly – diseases, prescription drugs, and many other nasties.

Very interesting question which prompted me to do a little more research on the matter. My initial reaction was an astounding, “Yes”, however, I now have to admit there has to be much more research beyond the Harvard study. To begin with, according to the Flouride Information Network, www.flourideinfo.org, Flouride is found naturally in water supplies coming from the rocks and sediment within those sources. The quantity can range fro 0.12 to over 12 parts per million. I was perusing several sites and came across this one, www.Openparachute.wordpress.coms. Here are a few points they raise about the studies, particularly the Harvard Study.

It’s worth pointing out the Harvard study is literally one of dozens of studies worldwide revealing links between fluoride consumption and low IQ’s in children (not to mention other adverse health effects).

I am unhappy with he Harvard study because (a) The levels of fluoride at times almost enter the toxicity zone, (b) other studies were excluded, but had they been included, the effect would have shrunk, (c) many of those included had other effects present, e.g. iodine deficiency, As, and in the coal-burning regions, there would be a number of other things present.

Mass medication via water is just plain wrong and stupid. Some people eat more foods that naturally contain fluoride. And kids need less than adults. 

 

Poll ends May 1.
